Generic sysadmin. Hack coder. Jack of all trades, master of some.


Please Note:

I expect you to read any reference material I link to in my answers. If the answer to your question is contained in said reference material and the reference source is not likely to disappear I will probably not cut and paste it onto SF unless it's really cool/interesting/obscure.
In return I promise not to link anyone to goatse or tubgirl

I expect you to think for yourself and do a little thinking (and mayhaps even some work) to solve your problems. If you aren't capable of this, please exit the profession via the door on your left.
In return I promise to do my best to aim you in the right direction, and to clarify any points you have trouble with

comment Can't access website or restart apache2 server
Dumping your entire configuration on us with a "please fix!" post like this is incredibly poor form. For the future, please put in a modicum of effort (read your own configuration file, paying special attention to the line the error message is pointing you at, and if you still can't figure out the problem post the relevant section of your configuration file, not the whole bloody thing!) It would be very much appreciated if you would clean up your post...

comment Compiling Apache HTTP Server with Visual Studio 2010
Sorry, but "How do I compile Apache" is out of scope for Server Fault -- we deal with the administration of the software, not the operation of your compiler/IDE. If you're having difficulty with the build process you can contact the Apache project for assistance. Apache on Windows is something of a white elephant though - the general consensus on SF is "If you're on Windows use IE. If you need Apache run some kind of Unix."

Read the error message. Fix the problem. (seriously, this is pretty obvious. As a professional you should not need to be spoon-fed.)

comment Difficulty racking HP ProLiant Gen8 servers
@Snellgrove I've never expanded the post-to-post distance on a running rack. I'm quite certain I wouldn't want to attempt such a thing, and I'm equally certain I wouldn't want to shut down a whole rack just to safely move the posts. I'm a bit of a wuss though :-)
